Simple Meatballs

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 25 minutes


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 2 cups beef or chicken broth (or homemade chicken broth [3])
  • additional spices as desired
  • salt
  • 1-2 tsp corn starch (can be corn or potato starch)
  • Serve with rice or pasta


  • In a large bowl, mix together the raw hamburger, oats, and minced onion. Add in additional spices if desired for special flavors.
  • Form the meat mixture into balls and place in an 8×8 baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes or until the meatballs are done on the inside.
  • While the meatballs are cooking, cook your rice or pasta. You will also want to cook your gravy during this time.
  • For the gravy, add the broth to a saucepan and stir in a bit of salt. Bring the mixture to a boil. Add about a teaspoon of starch to a small bowl and mix with water to make a thick liquid. Add to the broth and stir while adding.  Let boil gently, stirring frequently until desired consistency is reached.
  • To finish, put your meatballs on top of the pasta or rice and top with gravy.
